Just excellent with frozen scallops -- and quick, too. I used evaporated skim milk instead of whipping cream, removing much of the fat from the dish and keeping all the good flavor. Just delish! Thanks!!!

Fantastic soup! It was gone in a minute. I used lump crab meat, fresh shrimp and canned clams as well as whole wheat flour for the roux, whole milk instead of whipping cream and chicken stock instead of veg and water. I asked my friends whether this soup was of restaurant quality and they said: Absolutely! Thank you.

My first time making seafood chowder, this couldn't get any easier, a great "base" recipe, I loved this method and will be using it from now on. I used lobster, canned clams, shrimp, imitation crab (sushi kind), bite sized salmon pieces, haddock fish, mussels and bay scallops.
Also, I also prepared mashed potato off to the side then added to the soup base, it adds a little extra richness with not much calories.

Wonderful! Even my husband liked it! I used fresh shrimp and canned clams and crab, and it still turned out really good. Was even better the second day, after the flavors had more of a chance to meld together.

I substituted seafood broth for the water and vegetable broth - and used lemon pepper, dill weed and Old Bay instead of the mixed pepper seasoning. Delicious!

This is the one!!! It is sooo good. i made it for my husband for Valentine's Day. We both like to get seafood chowder when we go out to eat and this one tastes just like it. I used fresh bay scallops, shrimp, and crabmeat. I also used all whipping cream like it calls for. For the pepper seasoning , I used lemon pepper. Delicious!!!

All I can say is WOW!!! My husband raved about this, and that's what counts the most. I changed the 2 small potatoes to a large sweet potato, and it was delicious.

Wonderful chowder! I used a mix of shrimp and bay scallops. For the whipping cream, I used 2 cups of whipping cream and 2 cups of milk. I saved some fat, but still had a rich and tasty chowder. I'll definitely make this again. Thanx for posting it!
